Overall Product Rating:     

I'm loving this backpack. Its built to last, and just built smart.

Brilliant Bag, I can fit so much in. It conforms with Domestic Flights bag sizes (Australia). Very well thought out and the quality is first class. Comfortable to wear. I have used it at things like airshows and worn it all day fully loaded. I cannot fault it!!

When traveling, I replace the belt with my Pro Speed Belt, rip out the padding and insert my Holster 50 and skins for the gear I'll need. On location, the pack stays in the trunk or hotel room and the holster and needed skins go back on the belt. I pack a D3, 80-200 or 80-400, 18-35, 50mm, SB800, SB900, SU800, Softbox III, filters, Justin clamps, reflectors, blower, 17" Powerbook at once. Rates an 11 on the 1-10 scale.

Really liking this bag ! Thoughtful design, tough hardware and straps . I can carry my Gitzo GT3530LS , 1Ds III,70-200mm f/2.8L IS,16-35 F/2.8L II,24mm F/3.5L TS-E II ,50mm f/1.2L, 85mm f/1.2L II , two 580ex II, pocket wizards,filters, laptop.... Really surprised me as to the amount of gear I can carry ! VERY HAPPY WITH MY NEW BAG ! and I plan to purchase a roller as well ! As a previous reviewer states "Rates an 11 on the 1-10 scales !"

Love this bag. Fits all my needs and has room for growth. See my full review with more pics at

I just got this bag and i have a lot to go to fill it up. my main issue was finding bag that would zip fully around an HP dv7 laptop yet not be a massive bag. this fit the bill perfectly. the dv7 is a little tight but it does fit and zip all the way around. dimensions of that laptop are 1.2"x10.75"x16.2"

Great backpack and fits a pro DSLR perfectly! Lots of room for lenses and fits in airplane overhead bin or under seat very nicely. Quality made product!

This bag exhibits the best use of space I've seen in a backpack. I can hold my 7D w/grip attached to my 300 f2.8IS w/hood in ready position, and I still have room for my 5D, 17-40L, 70-200 f4L, and 1.4x converter. Amazing design for real outdoor shooting!

Just bought mine (ThinkTankPhoto StreetWalker HardDrive) last weekend and I really like it. Just nice fit with 3 units Canon bodies with speedlite and other accessories. Awesome !!

I just got back from St. Kitts, St Lucia and Barbados teaching photography and film making seminars to International students. I had with me for the first time a Streetwalker hard drive Think Tank Backpack. I will never travel again with out one! I could not believe how much I appreciated it and the quality of it and how well it was designed. From the special computer zipper slot making the many security airport checks easy, to the padding and make of the back pack making the carrying of it for long distances effortless (even though packed with heavy gear) to the various pockets and handles making organizing my gear a breeze to the extra deep pocket for the larger pro camera body I have to easily fit to the rain cover which literally SAVED my gear SEVERAL times over as I was hiking through the Rain forests. All in all it is the best bag I have ever owned of any kind and if photographer really knew it's value, they would get it! Thank you for making such a great bag!

Brought it as I wanted a bag that would fit my D300 Griped with a 200-400 attached (hood reversed) it is perfect...I also have in it at the moment as well as the above a 300f4, 105macro + 60macro and still have room for my phone, purse and other stuff a girl cannot live without!

Absolutely awesome high capacity bag. Extremely well built and very comfortable. I love the recessed area that accommodates my Canon body with grip attached. Pockets are plentiful and storage wells are deep enough to stand most lenses with hoods reversed. Easily my new favorite bag. I can get my Canon 70-200mm and 100-400mm with tons of remaining room!

Bought this backpack to replace my Kata 467. This fits my gripped Nikon D90 with 70-200 lens attached, 18-105mm, 70-300mm AFS, 17-50mm 2.8, 28-75mm 2.8, 50mm 1.8, P&S camera, misc filters, my 15" MBP, and all chargers, cords etc with room to spare. Very durable and comfortable!!

I wish I could give this pack more than 5 Stars! I used to have multipel packs to carry gear depending on what I was shooting that day. Now I simply stuff everything into the Streetwalker HardDrive and bring the Modular belt system with me. Between the two, you can cover 99.9% of anything out there. Construction is a 15 out of 10 and it's yet to show sings of wear after almost 2 years of non-stop use and abuse....Thank you ThinkTank! - Pat Bonish/Bonish Photo

WOW!!! What a bag, TT got it right with this one, don't let its size fool you. I have fit a Nikon 600f/4 with no lens shade and Nikon 200-400 with shade in this puppy. Great bag for the price and well built.

I bought this bag for a trip to Kenya, and couldn't be happier with it. My gear had plenty of room, and was padded in a way that I never feared for it's safety. This bag DOES fit in any plane, I know from experience. I had it in a 17 passenger puddle jumper, and on a 747. Perfect for my needs.

I absolutely love this bag. I'm amazed at how much gear it can carry. I recently packed two Canon bodies, a 7D with a Canon 100-400mm mounted and a 30D with a Tamron 18-270mm mounted. I tossed in a Canon 10-22mm and a Canon 100mm macro. On top of that I had three 77mm filters, batteries, chargers, bulb blower, camera manuals, filters, a ball head, plus my lap top and adapter/charger. I was a little nervous about my first flight on a regional jet. I found that It fits with room to spare under the seat on a CRJ-700 and will fit in the overhead with the laptop removed. I would recommend buying a light duty laptop sleeve for just this purpose. I also found that I could remove the belt supplied with the StreetWalker HardDrive and use my SpiderBelt holster belt as the backpack's waist belt. The bag carries a monopod or tripod very nicely. Quality and craftsmanship is superb. Field tested tough on a recent Yellowstone winter trip.

What can i say about StreetWalker HardDrive. Just that i found what i was looking for all this years. Perfect !!!

Have this bag about a month now & all I can say is GREAT! It swallows everything I can throw at it & is very comfortable to wear. You guys really ARE photographers aren't you!

Walking through security into the departure lounge at Prague airport I put my HardDrive bag down and pushed it through the maximum cabin baggage measuring machine with millimeters to spare. This bag is comfortable and a perfect fit in many ways. I cannot recommend it highly enough

It holds every camera gear I need as well as a laptop(Two bodies, 70-200, 24/1.4, 17-55, 85/1.4, 50mm/1.8, two SB-900, flashmeter, double Blackrapid harness, harddrives, etc ). Perfect for lots of jobs. The only "problem" is the waist belt coming with the bag. It is way too small to support the weight correctly. But it's easily fixed using a larger belt.

I was looking for a bag I could take with me when I travel - something airline approved that could fit all of my gear under the seat in case the overhead bins were full. I wanted a backpack as opposed to a shoulder bag, roller-carryon or Pelican case. Lastly, I needed something comfortable enough to wear all day backpacking through the city or at an event. After looking at what seemed like hundreds of options, I went with the Think Tank StreetWalker HardDrive. Hopefully, you find this review helpful. Most of what I am paid to shoot is on location portraits/headshots and events. Over the years, I've collected a closet full of bags, but never one that could carry everything comfortably. Until I purchased this backpack about 6 months ago. PROS: * Comfortable - I wore this on my back for three consecutive 12 hour days during an event (I'm 6'3" 175lbs). Thanks to the awesome shoulder straps and waist belt, it felt like 25 pound pillow. The back of it has so much padding and it's vented, so you don't really get too hot. * Waist Belt - It puts the bulk of the bag on your hips when you need it. When you don't, it stores neatly out-of-site underneath a padded section creating a sort of unintentional lumbar support. * Accessible - The front unzips fully so everything is within reach. It's easy to work out of this on a table or on the ground. * Durable - Meaty zippers, tough ripstop exterior and great stitching! * Safe - The best padding I have ever seen in a bag! Includes enough Velcro inserts to customize it to your exact needs. * Laptop Compartment - Fits up to a 15" laptop. I carry my 11.6" netbook when I travel, and store it with the screen side facing my back, as the weight of the gear might push against this compartment. So far, no problems. Very well padded! * Tripod - When you need it, there is a hidden tripod pocket that un-Velcros out the bottom and two sets of straps to buckle it down. * Dual Water Bottle Holders - Sure you could use these pockets for anything, but I use them for water or snack bars. * Exterior - Something I've come to appreciate is the exterior structure. It's well padded from being thrown to the grown or into a trunk. And the top handle is well built and just perfect for grab and go carry. Also, the large front pockets is brilliantly organized. CONS: * Price -As I tell my clients when asked about competitor pricing, "People know what their product is worth and charge accordingly." You get what you pay for and it is so worth the investment. Just buy this backpack, you'll love it! FLYING WITH IT: I've been on just over a dozen trips with this bag. When I travel, I stow everything but my cameras, lens, flash and laptop. First, be prepared to empty everything into the trays before you send it through the security x-ray machines. Trust me, it just makes it a faster and more pleasurable experience for everyone. I have never been a problem getting onboard with it; even when the gate officer is tagging roller-bags because they ran out of overhead room. Keep in mind that this bag will fit under the seat in front of you if that's all the room left. WHAT I CARRY: Some people just love peeping into another person's bag. So, if you were wondering what I fit and carry when I travel, here's the list. This is not what I carry everyday, as I usually only use this bag for travel. This is just a list of what I take with me when flying. Typically it weighs in about 25lbs, when fully loaded it's pushing >35lbs. * Camera: Canon 7D gripped, 7D ungripped, batteries, charger, cables, CF cards * Lenses: Rokinon 8mm Fisheye, Tokina 11-16, Canon 28mm, 60mm Macro, 85mm, 135mm (all with hoods reversed) * Flashes: (3) Canon 430ex II's, Sto-fen's, Strobist gel pack, lots of AA batteries and 2 battery charges * Laptop: Acer Aspire One 722 - 11.6" netbook * Misc: Sekonic L-308s light meter, YongNuo RF-602's transceivers, RF trigger, LensPen, Color Checker, dust cloth I recently purchased the Think Tank Speed Racer V2.0. Based on these two purchases, Think Tank is good money well spent, and IMHO the best bang for the buck. Add me to their customer for life list. Thanks for reading!

Outstanding backpack! Was considering the Airport Antidote but purchased this backpack instead. First usage - 6 days at AirVenture 2011 with 9-12 hours per day use. Was as comfortable at the end of the day as at the start. Carried all my gear plus other items with room to spare. Needed to deploy the rain cover several times and it was very easy to do so. No commercial travel issues and it fit in the overheads of two different model regional jets. Thanks TT for another great product.

Just got back from Maui with this bag. It carried my 60D, 24-70, 70-200 2.8, and a bunch of other stuff great. Was comfortable to wear with all that stuff in it walking around Hakeakala looking for that perfect shot. Fit under the seat on the plane (with the tripod removed) no problem. And the laptop compartment held my MacBook Air *and* my iPad2 just fine!

I purchased this backpack in Aug '11 for trips to Alaska and Africa. After 12 days in Alaska and 23 days in Africa, it was the perfect bag for both trips. I used it in conjunction with modular belt and the Skin set. I carried it on board 18 passenger single engine planes all over Kenya and Tanzania without a problem, but it was right at the limit of what I could get away with. I had to leave my 15" MacBook Pro behind to keep my weight within the max we were allowed, so the iPad2 went instead. The StreetWalker carries an amazing amount of gear. For Africa we loaded two bodies: 7D and T2i, Canon 100-400, 70-200f4, 35-135, 16-35f2.8, 1.4X Extd., assorted batteries, chargers, etc. Like others, I would give this one an "11" out of "10".

As a wildlife photographer with stringent demand for slim profile camera pack that fits snugly on my back and allowing me to advance through crowded cities and thick jungle alike, the Think Tank Hard Drive has proven its level of excellence to meet my demand. Moreover, this pack when packed properly, allows me to fit in a Nikon 500mm f/4.0 lens attached to Nikon D3s, a 80-400mm lens, other accessories like filters, remote, speed flash SB800 and my MacBook 13" (which is sufficient to fit even the 15" MacBook Pro)! Simply love it!!

I'm loving this bag so far. I even have some extra room. The true test will be next month on my vacation.

Love this bag. Trip to Kauai ment lots of equipment to be prepared for anything and it excelled. Best was the rain cover which I needed two days running. Great in the plane fit so well. Fit 17 inch laptop just fine. Even got my carbon fiber Alta 284CT tripod inside! Tough and so far has stood up to falls by me and travel bruises. I had a sling bag but to much weight on just one shoulder...this spread the weight. Wish it had an outside easy access to grab camera without taking off and setting down...but I know they have other products that do that in a different manner. All in all I would recomend this bag for travel.

great, spacious bag, I can store just about anything in there, and it re-arranges with ease. I carry a Nikon D3, D2X, D3100, 14-24, 70-200, 50 1.4, 85 1.4, 3 SB910's and a 24mm f/1.4 FIVE STARS FOR SURE!

Purchased May 2012 for a trip to Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Key West. The fit and finish on my StreetWalker HardDrive is PERFECT. I just sit and look at the inside and outside it is so PERFECT. A work of practical art. I carry a Canon 5D3, Canon 24-105 L IS, Canon 24mm L II, and the new Canon 70-300mm IS L II lenses. All hoods reversed except the 24-105mm attached to the camera. I also carry 112Gigabytes of memory, extra Canon batteries, Garmin 3790LMT nüvi, Acer Aspire ONE 722. My first backpack anything in my 67 years on this earth and it is from HEAVEN. Love the YKK zippers. They are bulletproof. Eternal gratitude to the designers and craftsmen at thinkTANK.

I really like this bag. It holds my camera and lenses with space to spare. When fully packed it can fit in nearly any plane's overhead bin and below the seats of most passenger planes. It is my carry on during most trips and I've yet to had a problem. This bag has been on safari to Kenya, Costa Rica, and road-tripping across the US. I keep a 7D mounted to a 300 f2.8 IS w/hood in shooting position & cansqueeze it in even w/ a 1.4x converter attached. I think it's a brilliant design. See my bag fully packed for my 18 day road trip through the Canadian Rockies here:

This is a very well made backpack, with room enough for my medium format kit, which includes a 500mm monster. I have carried this pack up many hills, and it IS super comfortable. Only shame is I did not get the straps that go on the front for the tripod. Highly recommend for any photographer with telephoto lenses.

I just got it delivered today. First impression - well built, low profile design, sturdy, spacious.

I buy it in emergency in london fot the paralympic games. I never separete from it during all the games and now it 's my preferred choiche in any photojournalist job

What a great bag. I am not used to having so much much room. Problem is, now I want to buy more gear to fill it. Buy this bag, you will never regret it.

you guys are just phenomenal !!!! searched in the web for a new camera back. used one form these "australian guys". the problem: bought a new 70-200 2.8 lens and ti did not fit any more. other problem I had: always came back with back problems when carrying ma camera inside this back. ended up on Think Tank website and decided to buy the Streetwalker Harddrive. Whats in my backpack: Nkon D4, Nikor 70-200 2.8 VR II, Nikor 27-70 2.8 attached to camera, Nikor 50 mm 1.8 lens, Nikon SB 800 with bag, SB 910 with bag, complete Gary Fong collapsible pro kit, spare battery for flash unit, spare battery for camera. the space for laptop fits easily my Mac Book Pro 15" with sleeve and iPad 3. If I am not carrying my computer I use the space to keep my jacket inside, sometimes two: a fleece and a warm one. And the best: even when carrying the backpack all day long - I don't come back with any back pain. Thanks for this great designed and well made lovely and absolute useful backpack !!!

This is my biggest bag. I reach for it when I'm bringing the kitchen sink. I own four Think tank bags now and i'm happy with all of them. Always the best quality both materials and workmanship

This is exactly what I needed. Holds a pro Nikon (or Canon, I suppose) with 80-400 zoom and has plenty of room for other gear. I broke it in on a "Seal Watch" expedition yesterday and it held all I needed plus. I like the tripod/monopod attachment method especially.

Well, I finally found a bag that will handle a pro body with a long lens mounted plus a lot of extra gear. Design: six stars. Comfort: five. Build quality is off the chart. My first use was on a seal-watch shoot for an Audibon Society type group and I loved it. It is even a kinda chick magnet as well! My monopod strapped neatly to the back but I will try mounting it to the side on my next shoot.

I use this bag as my main storage bag at home & ALWAYS for travel, which I do more than the average person. It's just about perfect! It holds a ton of gear plus my laptop. The only drawback for me is that, being female, I find it too heavy to carry on my back when fully loaded with camera gear AND the laptop. However, I solved that by buying a luggage trolley to use in airports. Without the laptop, or a lighter one, I would not have any problem using it as a backpack but I pretty much take my laptop everytime I travel. I have never had any trouble using it as a carry-on or storing in an overhead bin on a plane. This is a very smart, well constructed, functional bag. I have several other smaller bags that I use for various situations, but this is my MAIN bag and I like it better overall than any others.

This bag is EVERYTHING that everyone else says it is! I recently obtained Really Right Stuff panorama gear, and was facing the dilemma of how to (a) travel by plane with camera, lenses, pano gear, laptop, and tripod, and (b) keep my hands free while on substantial hikes with all my gear. This backpack suits my needs to a T, and yet somehow still feels compact. Very high quality, thoughtful design, with lots of extra purposeful compartments for things like batteries, memory cards, filters, and the like. In a word, BRILLIANT.

Nothing more to add, just Perfect with a capital 'P'

Perfect backpack to fit my 7 lenses (70-200, 14-24 included), my D4, 2 speedlites, and my macbook pro 15". While the same stuff cant be fitted in Urban Disguise 60, or my everyday backpack ie the shape shifter. Well built, love it.

Een super slim ingerichte rugtas. Hoewel mijn oude schoudertas net te klein was voor alle atributen, past hier alles gemakkelijk in, én veilig. Ik heb het idee een zeer praktische tas gekocht te hebben. Juist omdat ik de 400 mm. telelens op de body wil laten zitten, is deze tas bijna de enige mogelijkheid om alles gebruiksklaar in te pakken. SUPER !!!

To begin with I own several ThinkTank photo bags, including Airport take off, retrospective 40 and Urban disguise 60…. And several other brands also (which don’t get much use anymore) – to date, my best ‘compromise’ bag (all bags have some type of compromise – weight, size, capacity, etc..) is the StreetWalker Hard Drive…. I’ve used it on my last 2 overseas trips (Australia and Vietnam) and also as an event walkaround ‘all day’ bag – to carry my gear, and then quickly swap lens either with the speedbelt or put the bag on the ground and swap. For events/walkaround I keep 1-2 pouches on the speedbelt, for travel, I just use the in-built strap and no pouches (don’t need anything saying ‘pro photo gear’ when you are travelling…) .. My last trip I loaded 16kg on the bag… this trip a better 12kg…. including Macbookpro 15” retina and an ipad… I just wish the laptop compartment was a little deeper, as it is a bit cramped in there, albeit I load the ipad AND the laptop together…. This is my favourite one-bag set up to travel. For longer trips (week or more) I tend to take the Airpot Take off and the retrospective/ or urban disguise as walkaround depending on my needs…. Highly, highly recommend this bag…..

I wanted something that was comfortable to wear and held more than my GlassTaxi. I was able to comfortably fit a Canon 500mm f4 with 1D body attached, along with a 5D Mark III with 70-200mm attached and still had room for 1.4 and 2X entenders and a Hoodman in the main compartment. I have the laptop compartment available for Ipad, filters, batteries and anything else. I'm tall 6'3" and the additional length of the bag makes it more comfortable on my back.

I have just invested in pro DSLR Nikon gear and was looking for a bag to transport my equipment locally and internationally. My requirements were airline compatible, laptop storage and enough space for my current Nikon D800E, 70-200mm, 24-70mm, 14-24mm, and TCE20III Nikkors, Apple Powerbook Pro, ND filters, chargers, batteries etc and hopefully an additional body in the future. I researched bags and quickly discovered I was going to have to make the decision between a transport, versus a shooting bag. The next decision was to choose a manufacturer and I looked at all the usual suspects in the local camera stores and online, as well as inhaling all the reviews I could find After looking, trying on, and stomping around camera stores with empty bags it was clear to me that Think Tank products were head and shoulders above the competition in quality, features and design. So with the manufacturer decided, next decision was which model. My heart was set on the Retrospective 50 shoulder bag, it had the interior volume I needed as well as laptop storage, and it just appealed to my design sensibilities. It looked very cool, but I had this nagging concern about transporting heavy equipment across one shoulder rather than on my back and hips. I was running out of time and mail order from Think Tank was out of the question for my upcoming workshop in Death Valley, so I went to Samy's in Santa Barbara where Tyson sealed the deal for me with the Streetwalker Hardrive over the Retrospective 50. With Tyson's recommendation and my own experience with a small Tamrac day pack I opted for the Streetwalker Hardrive backpack. The first time I loaded my gear into my new pack and hoisted it onto my two shoulders I instantly knew I had made the right decision, carrying the weight of my equipment distributed across two shoulders and the hip belt was obviously the way to go. I've just got back from Death Valley where we hiked four miles over a rocky gravel slot canyon floor and I was sooo glad I had my gear in a backpack. Working from the backpack was simple enough, slipping it off my shoulders and laying it on my jacket at ground level. The front unzips on three sides to reveal the entire interior compartment. I kept one velcro divider spare to quickly adjust the top middle compartment for either my body with the long 70-200mm attached, or the shorter 14-24mm. I'm in my early sixties, so comfort while transporting won out for me over ease of access to shoot from. Very happy so far - Joe

Outstanding attention to detail. Hardy fabric, stout zippers, excellent padding, I can't begin to describe how Think Tank slams the door on the competition.

Love this bag. I finally have a bag that carries everything I need comfortably. 5d3, 7d, 300f4, 700-200f2.8, 24-105, 17-40, 2x430II, chargers, and more..... Love it!!!

I had not heard of Think Tank until reading an article by one of Nikon's Ambassadors, he mentions using a 'Think Tank' bag . I had been looking for a quality backpack, but had not been able to find anything that fitted the bill; I had sent a few back after finding these other manufacturer's 'Pro' bags wouldn't hold my gear satisfactorily. I decide to look-up Think Tank; after reading the reviews both on their website and lots of others, I ordered a Streetwalker Hardrive. The case is brilliant, it holds all my gear and still has room to spare. It is well made, using quality materials and offers some very versatile storage options, while also having plenty of useful pockets for bits and pieces. The rain cover is provided folded in a small pouch and takes up little room. The extra strapping for attaching a tripod is well thought out and feels very secure. In the case I have: Nikon D300 body with 80-400mm lens attached, with the hood fitted to the front. Nikkor 17-55mm lens. Nikkor 55-200mm lens. Nikkor 40mm lens. Speedlight SB910 in its case. Blower and cleaning cloths Various filters. Remote trigger devices. Memory cards, spare batteries, etc... Plus a Nikon P7000. My Manfrotto 190 tripod with X Pro 3 way head attached, fits very securely on the backpack. There is still plenty of room in the bag and I haven't used any of the outside pockets. The bag, once on the back, is very comfortable and seems well balanced. Of course there is no way I would carry all this when I'm out walking (I'm getting on in years); but this bag is ideal to holding all my gear at home and then is comfortable to use with selected items, when out for a day shooting. Even with the tripod attached it feels very well balanced and does not tend to drag back like some backpacks do. This is an excellent photographic backpack; well made and thoughtfully designed. I highly recommend it.

Holy Mother of Bags! B The Wedding I just shot which required a lot of long distance travel and constant moving between multiple locations and lots of walking. This bag is a workhorse and seriously made my event much easier. It handled everything I threw at it and worked perfectly. This bag was in and out of hotels on the beach and in the sand and zippers never missed a beat. The detail of this bag is outstanding and the so many things have been thought out. My Bag consisted of; Canon 5D Mark III (Gripped with a hand-strap) Canon 70-200 2.8 IS II Sigma 50 1.4 Canon 85 1.4 Canon 50 1.8 Canon 24-105 F4 Canon 17-40 F4 Canon Speedlight 600ex-rt Canon Transmitter Canon Vixia HF M500 camcorder Canon S110 Tripod with Pistol Grip Light Stand Tripod Apple Ipad with Padded Sleeve Rain Cover Batteries Chargers ***Tons of other accessories and a bottle of water! Seriously I listed all this stuff so people can really gather an idea on how much gear this bag will hold. If I could make any suggestions I would love to see the side/back pockets have a pleat to allow odd shaped items to fit but wouldn't require extra bulk. This would really help when the bag is fully loaded down. I was able to carry good size tripod and a light stand on the outside of the bag and the clip system was PERFECT! Thank You So Much for getting this bag to me so quickly and Randy for outstanding customer service you have earned a customer for life. Logan W Folsom, CA

What great products you build! My first one was a Urban Disguise 60 that I bought about 7 years ago and used extensively while traveling doing consulting before I retired. It still looks like new. The next one, a Street Walker that I bought in January 2010, has been around the world and more on plane, train, and everything else and looks like new too. Now I have graduated to the Street Walker Hardrive so I can carry all my photo equipment and laptop. They are very functional, flexible, comfortable, attractive and worth every penny. You are doing it RIGHT. Thanks from a very happy customer. Bob, Monterey

As expected this bag had the same build quality as the Takeoff, that means it is build to last. It can definitely take a beating. Very thick sturdy canvas and heavy duty YKK zippers. The bag is much smaller than the TakeOff but extremely complete. The backpack straps are one of the most comfortable ones I have ever seen, thick and padded. The backplate is also padded so it will rest softly against your back. In the middle it has an airflow channel made from breathable fabric to keep your back cool. The 2 pockets on the front are designed to carry small stuff like papers, memory cards or batteries. I use them to carry my passport, headlight, gloves and dust mask. At the bottom a lid which pulls out a tripod cup. 2 straps with neatly designed clasps are included inside which can be attached as tripod holders. Even though I have a large Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod with a large BH-55 bullhead on it, the straps could easily hold the tripod firm in place. The sides also have additional pockets but I had no need for them. At the back is a padded slot to store your laptop. To my surprise my 17” Macbook Pro fitted without any problem. When opening the StreetWalker HardDrive you can see 2 big pockets on the lid. In the top one I store my batteries and small gear in the bottom one. The inside of the base can be adjusted any way you want with velcro dividers. I really liked the default layout and just moved 2 of the dividers. A rain cover is included if you find yourself in some bad weather on the road. I carry a lot of gear like a SmallHD screen, Colorspace harddrive, several lenses, flashlights, tools and I even had space left. You get a lot of bag for your money. Even of you own two or three DSLR bodies you shouldn’t have any problems stashing them together with the rest of your gear inside. With all my gear inside and the tripod attached the bag is pretty heavy but with the well build harness construction the weight was divided perfectly and I could carry the bag whole days without any problems. Do I recommend this bag ? Oh yes, you will love it. It has a pretty steep price tag but you get exactly what you pay for. You won’t regret it. This is my main bag now and Think Tank will have a tough job building something even better.

Just bought this and loving it. More than enough space and the model I got holds my laptop!

I've owned this backpack for over five years. I estimate it being used for about 1500 shoots. Not only does it still look new, the foam padding hasn't deteriorated in any manner. The bag can fall off a chair and I won't bat an eye. The functionality of the tripod holder is great as is the weather resistant material. It's because of this bag that I am a repeat and lifelong customer of Think Tank products.

I've had this bag for almost 6 years now and it has been the absolute best camera backpack I've ever owned. Plenty of space and extremely durable. I'm at the point now where I need another photo backpack and ThinkTank will be my go to company for my next purchase.
